Alec Benjamin – The Knife In My Back lyrics
I'm slowly learning
That the things you promised me
Are burning like the embers
Of a thousand willow trees
, and

Every single secret
Has been broadcast like TV
Now all the threads are severed
That were tying you to me

[Chorus x2]
I thought we
Were friends, but now we're
Enemies

Pull your knife out of my back
You're blood runs black
I was just surprised at how you turned on me so fast

I let you in
I held you close
My blood flows like a river 'cause I trusted you the most

And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)

I was so naive I even let you in my home
Took you out for dinner and let you wear my clothes
I can't even breathe; I have your scent still in my nose
It's like I almost miss you; I should have known

[Chorus x2]
I thought we
Were friends, but now we're
Enemies

Pull your knife out of my back
Your blood runs black
I was just surprised at how you turned on me so fast

I let you in
I held you close
My blood flows like a river 'cause I trusted you the most

And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)

[Chorus x2]
I thought we
Were friends, but now we're
Enemies

Pull your knife out of my back
Your blood runs black
I was just surprised at how you turned on me so fast

I let you in
I held you close
My blood flows like a river 'cause I trusted you the most

And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
And now I know it's over (woo-oooo)
